Work In Progress: SNOW Scene

What do you do when it's a frozen tundra outside, and you want to paint,  but you don't want to even drive to the studio?  You set up at home and make a tryptic of the snow scenes (from last year!).  This is almost done on the front, but as each canvas is on gallery wrap the sides need to be finished, then I'll mount them in a floater frame.  What I loved about painting this was 1) I painted it so that each canvas could stand on its own and 2) painting in acrylic I can layer and layer and layer - with all those gorgeous colors showing through!

And... my workshop has already started filling up!  Reserve your space, Feb. 23 & 24!  Top right of the blog!

  2. This is marvelous as is. I think this grayed orange is inspired and conveys wonderful winter light somehow- very cool!

  4. I am loving this tryptic. And...I love that each piece can stand on it's own. Lucky folks getting the opportunity to take a workshop from you! I know how good a teacher you are and they need to JUMP on that chance to learn from the best:):)

  6. Kelly all I can say is Wow, you make me almost miss RI. I did not paint much when we lived there but this really makes me wish I had looked harder. You gave such a warm glow to the snow, it is wonderful to see this, thanks

  12. What a great idea this is and you are doing a wonderful job on it. Sorry you are all frozen up there-it's chilly here, too-only 62 today. Seriously, though, I wish I could come up and take your workshop because I KNOW it will be a great one and everyone will have lots of fun.
